Cristina & Rafael house renovation

Hiha Studio as Architects

The aims of this project are two-fold: breaking the symmetry of two existing semi-detached houses, and providing a living space capable of contracting or expanding the perception of space according to the number of people living together. The entire project is structured by means of a single piece of furniture, which allows us to break the symmetry and control the feeling of space according to the needs of the inhabitants.
